UTRECHT.

This doggish civilization, nasta-buddhaya, lost all intelligence... Less intelligent these are called. Kamam duspuram. So kamam, the lusty desires... On account of this body there is lusty desire. We cannot deny it. But don't make it duspuram, never to be satiated. Then finished. Make it limited. Make it limited. Therefore, according to the Vedic civilization, the lusty desire is there, but you cannot use it except for the purpose of begetting a nice child. That is called puram, means restricted. So the brahmacari is educated in that way. Up to twenty-five years he cannot see a young woman. He cannot see even. This is brahmacari. He cannot see. Then he is trained up in that way, that he may continue a brahmacari life. Naistika- brahmacari. But if he's unable, then he's allowed to marry. That is called grhastha life, householder life. Because between twenty-five years to fifty years, this is the youthful time, so his lusty desires are very strong.
One who is not able to control... Not for all. There are many naistika-brahmacari. Naistika-brahmacari--throughout the life, celibacy. But that is not possible in this age, neither it is possible to become a brahmacari. The time is changed, this age. Therefore you can control your lusty desire by Krsna consciousness. Otherwise it is not possible. (sic:) Yadavadhi mama cittah krsna-padaravindayoh. One emperor, he was king, so naturally he was lusty also. So he gave up this life, became a devotee. So when he was perfectly situated, so he said, Yamunacarya... He was the guru of Ramanujacarya. So he said, that yadavadhi mama cittah krsna-padaravindayoh: "Since I've trained my mind to be engaged in the service of the lotus feet of Krsna," yadavadhi mama cittah krsna-padaravindayor nava-nava-dhaman rantum asit, "daily I am offering service to Krsna. I am getting new, new pleasure." The spiritual life means... If one is actually situated in spiritual life he'll get spiritual pleasure, transcendental bliss, by serving more and more, new and new.
